UFC president Dana White is refuting a claim that Nick Diaz has a fight-offer on the table.
Cesar Gracie, who trains Diaz, stated recently that the UFC has offered Diaz a fight and that it is kind of “neat” in terms of the opponent.
Gracie declined to name names, and now is coming under fire from White.
“Nobody at the UFC talked to Gracie or anyone elese that reps Nick,” said White, in a statement given to MMAFighting.com.
White confirmed that he helped get Diaz tickets for an event in Las Vegas earlier this month, and that the fighter talked about wanting to return.
